health minor

A minor in health can provide exactly the kind of specialization you need to position yourself in the job market. Many popular major programs work well with this minor – for example gerontology, education, communication studies and business – and you can apply the health angle to whatever field you decide to go into. From social work to information systems to chemistry, health education can be helpful.
